Size and fit

The low-top Adidas Ozweego Pride is a unisex pair presented in men's size range. Adidas tagged this as smaller than the usual fit; thus, the brand suggested buying a half size up than wearer's regular shoe size.

This sneaker features the classic round laces with rainbow-tinged piping on the heel area for an easily adjustable fit. Adidas also added lightweight EVA midsole, Adiprene cushioning on the heel and forefoot to absorb impact effectively.

Adidas Ozweego Pride Style

Displaying the celebratory colors of Pride month, the Adidas Ozweego Pride is a sneaker that will elevate one's familiar casual ensemble. The off-white mesh and suede upper of this pair represent the retro running heritage. Also, buyers can spot white accents on the logo, laces, and tongue inserted with contrast. Meanwhile, the vibrant gradient found on its midsole and the tubing around the heel honors the LGBTQ+ celebratory hues.

With this pair's dad sneaker profile, matching this with straight cut denim jeans and white printed shirt will surely give an authentic 'dad from the 90s' look. Also, a black jacket and ripped jeans can look more fashionable when paired with the Ozweego Pride. The Adidas Ozweego Pride looks good on feet when paired with striped crew-neck sweater and dress pants for a ruggedly elegant look.

Notable Features

The rainbow tones on the midsole of the Ozweego Pride gets the attention and praises from the onlookers. Gilbert Baker designed it and used by Adidas to show their support to LGBTQ+ community. The gradient hue on the midsole transitions from vibrant red to deep purple.

Also, another remarkable element is the tubing found around the heel down to the eyestay. This rainbow-colored detail is used for an easily adjustable fit while adding trendy charm.

Adidas Ozweego Pride History

Adidas Ozweego was introduced in the market in the 90s but got shelved in the early 2000s. In 2017, the brand revived the Ozweego by the Belgian fashion designer Raf Simons. Together, Simons and Adidas collaborated to come up with a modern rendition of the classic Ozweego, which quickly catapulted its prominence back to the market.

The modern Ozweego retained its classic features and was added with sleeker futuristic elements. The brand affixed heel wedge and support piping giving a look that is ahead of its time.

In 2019, Three Stripes unveiled the Pride Pack in May, just in time for the June Pride month. Included in this series are several reworked Adidas iterations, such as Adidas Continental 80 Pride, Adidas Nizza Pride, and Adidas Ozweego Pride. All these were tweaked to commemorate the many colors of love. 

Like the other iterations, the Adidas Ozweego Pride displays vibrant rainbow hues on its midsole. Its off-white upper is made of mesh and suede added with laces and rainbow-colored tubing. This sneaker was inserted with the Adiprene cushioning to provide comfortable strides to its wearers.
